Evans will need to be aware of Safiullin’s returning efficiency as the Brit will look to keep up his confidence on serve.
Playing styles and prediction
Safiullin has had another consistent season as he is now on the brink of the world’s top 50 after reaching his maiden Grand Slam quarter-final at Wimbledon. Now Safiullin will look to take his big-serving and smart returning to another successful tournament in Chengdu.
Evans will look to use his slice to neutralize Safiullin’s power as he looks to use the angles on the court to create space and hit clean winners past Safiullin. Meanwhile Safiullin will look to capitalize on any short second serves from Evans as Safiullin looks to remain efficient and consistent on return. This will be a tough opening match for Evans but the Brit should have enough variety to cause Safiullin problems and win a tight opening round contest.
